Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Training

CITI Program’s RCR Basic course covers the core norms, principles, regulations, and best practices for the conduct of ethical research. A module on “Reproducibility of Research Results” discusses factors that contribute to the lack of reproducibility and the effects non-reproducibility has on the scientific community and society in general. The module also describes the stakeholders affected by non-reproducible science, initiatives to enhance reproducibility, and strategies that you can employ to enhance reproducibility in your research.
